9781906502096: Flying into Hell: The Bomber Command Offensive as Recorded by the Crews Themselves

With the passage of time rapidly depleting the ranks of WWII combat veterans, the chance to learn what battle was like first hand is fast disappearing. Nothing can quite surpass a truthful personal account of such experiences to remind us of the courage of the young but also to dispel the myth that war is somehow glamorous.
In his collection of 20 short stories, related to him by the men themselves, best-selling author Mel Rolfe has done just that. This is a must-read for anyone interested in the subject.

Review:

'A timely publication ... all the stories are dramatic and breathtaking in the events they describe. It is the anonymity and enormity of what happens that makes it so fresh and interesting: A valuable historical record.'Air Pictorial'Meticulously researched, giving a diverse appeal in which lies the true quality of this eminently readable work.'Grantham Journal
